Cleanroom Wipes feature lower levels of lint to protect against contaminants, and some boast higher levels of absorbency, resistance to chemicals and abrasion, and in general, better cleaning capabilities. They're also softer, making them safe for use on sensitive equipment. Like the cleanrooms themselves, different classifications correspond to cleanroom classifications. Many of our cleanroom wipes are compatible with ISO class 6 or higher. Our cleanroom wipes are also produced in controlled environments to ensure the highest possible quality.
You'll find a variety of different options in our selection of cleanroom wipers, including ESD wipes, sterile cleanroom wipes, pre-saturated wipes and wipes made of microfiber, polyester and poly/cellulose. If you're looking for a style that's resistant to buildup of electrostatic discharge, then our ESD cleanroom wipes are a must. They can be safely used by electronics manufacturers, semiconductor manufacturers and other environments where the control of electrostatic buildup is critical. Our presaturated cleanroom wipes (ipa cleanroom wipes) come pre-treated with isopropyl alcohol (IPA) in percentages ranging from 9 to 70 for great cleaning performance, consistency and convenience when you need IPA on demand.
Choose from a wide range of materials to suit your particular needs. Cleanroom microfiber wipes are a popular choice for cleaning scratch-sensitive surfaces, while polyester cleanroom wipes are preferred in environments where minimizing particle and fiber generation is key. We also supply poly/cellulose wipes, which are always an excellent choice for general wiping and spill control because they're made of a unique blend of cellulose and polyester that feels similar to a paper towel. Shop clean room wipes manufacturers such as Teknipure, Chemtronics, Unitek and more.
What are the Types of Cleanroom Wipe Border/Edge Seals?
- Sealed Border
- Sealed Edge
- Laser Sealed Edge
Cleanroom Wipers have sealed edges to prevent particle and fiber generation and provide a clean wipe. Cleanroom wipes can have a sealed border, a sealed edge, or a cut edge. The level of fiber and particle release will depend on your wipe seal. Note the difference in sealing the border around the wipe (most clean) or just the wipe edge (most common).
Cleanroom Class 1-10 (ISO 3-4): Sealed Border
Sealed Border wipers are the cleanest & best performing choice for your most critical tasks. Maximum cleanliness and fiber control.
A proprietary process using pressure & heat is used to create a border seal for optimum fiber and particle retention, resulting in a 5mm Ultrasonic Border Seal around the border of the wipe. The most rigorous washing and border sealing process for applications requiring maximum particle and fiber retention.
Cleanroom Class 10-100 (ISO 4-5): Sealed Edge
Sealed Edge wipers are exceptionally clean and a common critical task wiper. The difference over border seals is that only the edging of the wipe is sealed instead of a border around the edge of the wipe. A Laser Sealed Edge is provided on all sides for maximum fiber and particle retention. A Ultrasonic Sealed Edge involves a process using pressure & heat to create an ultrasonic seal for fiber and particle retention. Ultrasonic Sealing is superior to Laser Sealing as it results in a softer edge, and lower carbon levels. Soft sealed edges retain all fiber in scratch sensitive applications.
Cleanroom Class 100-10,000 (ISO 5-7): Hot Knife or Laser Sealed Edge
Are All Cleanroom Wipes Lint-Free?
Controlled environments need to regulate the amount of fibrous materials that can potentially cause harm to sensitive machinery and lab testing. Standard operating procedures include precautions to prevent damage. The most obvious solution to prevent lint fibers damaging components is to only use lint free cleanroom wipes. There are many different grades of cleanroom wipes, depending on the ISO class of your cleanroom. Ensure you use a compatible lint free wipe material that corresponds with your ISO class. The difference between a regular wipe and ISO cleanroom wipe is the amount of lint material that sheds in use, the quality and regulation of the manufacturing facility, and the varying types of border edge seals.
Cleanroom wipes are designed for a variety of uses. Polyester lint free wipes are one common material for wipes because they are soft and non-abrasive. The fast-drying dense-weave increases absorption without shedding lint. Synthetic fibers resist wear and tear and keep your cleanroom lint free.
